Swoop adds its fourth aircraft

Today Swoop entered its fourth aircraft into service with the launch of a seasonal summer route between Abbotsford International Airport (YXX) and Winnipeg Richardson International Airport (YWG). The sold-out inaugural flight departs YXX at 6:00 p.m PST. Flights are offered daily until Labour Day, after which time they will be offered five times per week until the end of the summer schedule on October 27, 2018.

“We have received our fourth aircraft in perfect time to offer this daily service for end-of-summer vacations and to aid students who are relocating to attend post-secondary in the fall,” said Karen McIsaac, Senior Advisor of Communications at Swoop. “It’s a highlight for us to see the results of our low fares connecting friends and families in different provinces, such as on this sold-out flight today.”

The addition of the Abbotsford to Winnipeg route has doubled the weekly frequency schedule in Winnipeg, and added 7 flights to the Abbotsford weekly frequency schedule.

“The Abbotsford International Airport continues to expand flight options for passengers in our region,” said Mayor Henry Braun. “I’m pleased by the launch of Swoop’s summer service to Winnipeg and welcome more travellers to YXX.”

“Increased service to the lower mainland is good news for travellers from Winnipeg Richardson International Airport” said Scott Marohn, Director of Air Service and Product Development for Winnipeg Airports Authority. “Swoop has been a great addition to our airport and this new route further enhances their presence in our region.”

Swoop’s domestic and international winter schedules have also been released with flights available for booking through to April 27, 2019. The international schedule includes the addition of routes from Edmonton to Las Vegas and Mesa; Hamilton to Las Vegas, Fort Lauderdale, Orlando and Tampa Bay; and Abbotsford to Las Vegas.
